DiorShow Extase Mascara
I have been testing a new Dior mascara. It is a flanker for Diorshow called Extase and is currently exclusive to Sephora. This mascara is touted as a treatment product that also delivers high impact lashes. The treatment centers on a "patented ceramid called SR38", which penetrates and repairs the lash. I have only been testing Extase for a few weeks so I can not attest to long term benefits or changes.
I have noticed a dramatic difference in the volume of my lash. It is fatter. Like it is encased in a snuggie. The mascara contains "spherical black pearl pigments that wrap around each lash for a 3D volume". It also contains something called "Metamorphosis powders" that double the size of the lash by 50%. It will help with thickening up whippet thin lashes.
This thicker formula weighs down the lashes and hampers any curl. In comparison to Dior's Iconic, this formula does not deliver a clean application. I experienced flakes and smudges.
Extase mascara features a tiered, dual fiber brush. The Sephora site states the brush contains black Elastomer fibers and gold Nylon fibers. These fibers deliver definition while providing a generous coating. I found the brush collected too much product.
My final thoughts are that Dior Iconic is a beast. No mascara can compare or compete including others in the Dior family.
